Craft & Cleaver Catering – Fire meets flavour!

Craft & Cleaver specialise in rustic wedding feasts cooked on our impressive wood-fired barbecue rigs - a showstopping & unforgettable experience for your wedding celebration that your guests will talk about for years to come.

From wood-fired grilling to smoking & roasting directly on the coals, our chefs (firemasters) utilise a variety of techniques to infuse your wedding feast with that incredible flame-grilled flavour that just can't be beaten. Imagine the succulent aroma of Scottish salmon cooked on cedar planks, the delicate smokiness of slow-cooked lamb al asador, and the sizzling crackle of fresh produce grilling over an open flame. Each dish we prepare showcases the rich complexity & depth that only cooking over wood & charcoal can bring, delivered to your tables on rustic sharing platters for you and your guests to devour!

We understand that your wedding day is a celebration of love & togetherness, and our team will work closely with you to curate a bespoke menu that reflects your individual tastes, preferences, and dietary requirements with the finest locally sourced ingredients. We'll also provide a tasting as part of your catering package, so you can sample the flavours before the big day.

We’re committed to delivering a flawless catering experience that exceeds your expectations.

Wow just wow!

Incredible! The food and service provided by Adam and the Craft and Cleaver team for our wedding was exceptional. We had chosen our venue largely because it allowed us to have external catering which we felt would make our day more personal to us. We are two massive foodies so good food had to play a big part - we really didn’t want a sad plate of bland chicken. And wow did they deliver! We love the food at Craft and Cleaver so after liaising with Adam and realising that they could cater for our big day, we were buzzing! Adam was so personable yet professional and was on hand for all our questions in the run up right to cooking salmon over the fire on the wedding day itself. Adam helped us to craft a feasting menu shared ‘family style’ in the middle of the table that included our favourite elements and something to appeal to all guests. We opted for 4 canapés as starters; then slow cooked beef brisket, buttermilk chicken and cedar smoked salmon along with a host of slides for mains; then finally chocolate brownie and lemon tart for dessert. Throughout the meal you could head a ricochet of ‘Wow the beef’ through the room. The food itself was all exceptional and lived up to, and exceeded, all expectation. Safe to to say us and our guests were all very happy. A huge thanks to Adam and the team!

'The best food I've had at a wedding'...

...was what every guest said to us!
Simply the best food and experience from Adam and team, from booking through to the wedding day we couldn't have asked for more. We loved every aspect, and with myself being a, shall we call it 'relaxed, last minute bride' Adam helped with so many aspects more than just the catering. Meaning we could leave so much of the day to Adam and the team and completely relax.
Thank you SO much, and we would 1000000% recommend for every couple planning their wedding. It was DELICIOUS.

Hertfordshire Tipi Wedding

Adam and the rest of the C&C team were absolutely incredible. Adam really cares about the food, and was fantastic at coming up with a menu that would fit the day. Always responsive, and went consistently above and beyond to ensure everything worked like clockwork on the day. Could not recommend more highly.

The best wedding yet, the best wedding no one will ever forget!

Craft & Cleaver provided an outstanding service throughout the whole process, from the initial discussion, helping us decide a menu and the attentiveness during the big day.

The food as usual was immense and great value for money.

We had so many compliments on the day from even the hardest to please of family members, and still to this day we still get told how incredible the food was!

11/10 would recommend!
